mLive reports that a new dispensary in Bay City, Hashish Boyz will be selling clones:
CEO and Founder Brandon Dabish said that the store will be selling clones, which are (rooted) cuttings of marijuana plants, starting next week and that to his knowledge that Hashish Boyz is the first retailer in the state to sell clones.
“We feel like it’s a great opportunity to give people an opportunity to see the kind of care and the kind of work you have to put into a plant to really bring it to life and turn it into medicine and to medicate with it, and all the benefits of it,” Rami Kirma, COO said.
Dabish explained that there will be a limit on the number of plants that one can purchase but that there will be a variety of strains that customers can pick from.
So why offer clones instead of just seeds? Kirma said that cloning speeds up the process and allows already desirable plants to cloned, instead of home-growers having to start from scratch to select and breed traits that they like.
“Basically with clones, all you’re doing is taking a cutting off of a live plant and replanting that so that it gets rooted and you replant another one,” said Kirma.
Creating and selling clones is just a part of the Hashish Boyz operation in Bangor Township. The store also provides a variety of products to both recreational and medical customers in an area where municipalities have been holding an for cannabis entrepreneurs.
